Cheznews gathered that Arsenal are yet to bid for Gonzalo Higuain, according to the Napoli striker’s brother and agent Nicolas, a move which might end up being futile.
Reports has it that despite all the clamour, Higuain might end up at Napoli next season, with the reluctance of the club president to sell the player and the release clause (€94.7m) slammed on the player causing fear factor amongst interested buyers.
The Gunners were rumoured to have bid £43.3m for the Argentine, who is also reportedly a target for Chelsea and Manchester United.
“No team has asked me for Higuain,” Nicolas told Radio Crc. “I don’t know if [Napoli president Aurelio] De Laurentiis has had any offers, because as I’ve said I haven’t heard from the president for a long time, but I think he’d have called me if there was something concrete.”
In the same vein, Napoli president is insisting that Higuain is not for sale, making known his desire not to sell Napoli’s highest goal scorer for two seasons, and the former Real Madrid striker still has three years left on his contract, with 18 goals to his name last season and 7 assists, the Argentine might be staying put at Naples.
According to De Laurentiis, “There is absolutely no chance that Higuain will leave, he is a Napoli player. I have made his release clause clear in order to stop constant speculation that appears in the press. There is a precise clause”
